Your short haired dog might shed a lot more than some may think. Sure, you don’t find massive clumps of long fur around your house, but these short hairs still fall off your dog and drop onto your furniture or on your clothing. Your short haired dog will still need to be brushed out for better control of shedding. Though regular baths will help ease the amount of shedding your short-haired dog will drop, you will still need to brush him on a regular basis to keep the mess to a minimum.
If you brush your short-haired dog regularly, he should be used to the act of brushing. Be aware of the kind of brush you are using. A slicker brush might tickle or even massage your pup, but some may prefer a rubber brush or one without pokey bristles. Don’t forget the treat to reward your pup after bushing.
Your short-haired pup might be easier to care for than those higher maintenance fluffy pups, but don’t get in the doghouse by ignoring his brushing needs. Use petting moments as opportunities for affection and grooming and keep your short-haired pup looking fur-tastic.
